FKA Twigs Covers Jazz Classic ‘Summertime’: Watch

FKA Twigs performed live at Maida Vale for Annie Mac and BBC1 Radio, delivering the jazz classic “Summertime,” made popular by Billie Holiday, as well as a few tunes off her upcoming album Magdalene.

“Summertime” a George Gershwin composition written for the opera Porgy & Bess, was given a characteristically haunting Twigs twist with her smooth, bone-chilling vocals.

She followed up with Magdalene singles “Home With You” and “Cellophane.” The album comes out this Friday (Nov. 8).
